Written by Nobel prizewinner George Olah and his renowned co–workers, this is an in–depth yet concise overview of recent developments and significant progress in the field.
As such, it covers all major C1compounds, such as carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, methane and methanol, carbenes, C1 halides and organometallics. For each compound there is a discussion of its natural abundance and formation, synthesis and important transformations, as well as practical applications in the area of energy and fuels, materials, industrial processes for the benefit of mankind, especially the current efforts towards oil independence through renewable energy sources, such as methanol economy.
The result is a highly useful reference for a wide variety of scientists working in chemistry and energy–related industries, as well as decision–makers in those organizations concerned with the future of chemical and energy feedstocks.
